We just had the pasta with white truffle sauce clams and grouper. Just amazing. I normally only eat half of my pasta but I couldn't stop... More

Outdoor seating on the balcony is very nice. The background music was pleasant, not at all disturbing. Food and service was really fantastic. This could have been in Italy, but the large portions gave them away.

The young chef at this second story restaurant is Italian and he does not disappoint with his authentic yet island influenced Italian dishes. The pastas were fabulous and the risotto was on point. Great Job Francesco!

I had the grilled lobster and it was delicious. The view from the balcony was not particularly picturesque- afterward, I had wished we had eaten in the nice, open air second story dining room.

I love New Especias! The food is always tasty & Francesco will always accommodate special requests. We love the fillet mignon & the salmon. I also love the risotto. The capresse salad was super tasty too. The service is excellent!
